On Thursday 20 October, 40 pupils travelled to the Amitabha Buddhist Centre in Bristol. There they met ordained and resident Buddhists, and asked lots of great questions about living a modern life as a follower of Buddhism. The pupils all participated in a quiet meditation session, after which they felt more peaceful and calm. The morning sessions provided the opportunity to reinforce pupils' leaning regarding the lessons Buddha taught his followers.
In the afternoon, the pupils investigated many of the interesting and exciting artefact around the centre, sketching and writing about what they have learned. The children enjoyed a very unique day out.
